React3 is a Macintosh application for modeling and fitting chemical reaction
mechanisms. It is a complete rewrite of React2 and is presented in compiled
form for Macintosh computers. A sample input mechanism looks like:
This mechanism is a test with an analytic solution
0.5 * A --> B
0.10 B + A --> C
a silly test
where the * indicates a least-squares adjustable rate, lines containing an
arrow --> are reactions and all other lines are ignored.
There is a MS WORD manual and a plaintext filter of the manual with examples
and usage instructions.
all is packed in a self extracting archive encoded in MacBinary II
Consider this a test copy. Let me know how it works and what Mac and OS you
are using if there is trouble. It was compiled under 7.5.1 using Think C/C++
7.0 on my personal Performa 6115CD (601 PPC).

------------ UPDATE / BUG FIX --------------
Note for release 3.2 (Mac version) of React
React 3 has bugs! Sorry but it happens.
React 3.2 is patched around the bug while I rethink the problem.
Do not use the 'at' symbol [ '@' ] in variable names; it won't hurt
anything but a future release may use this symbol for the user to
flag variables to be treated using the steady-state approximation.
Further news: watch for OS/2 and possibly DOS versions
